In collaboration with D.C. Public Library, the DC Mayor’s Office, and the United States Navy Band, the museum sponsors a musical program in honor of the nation’s veterans past and present, featuring the Navy Band’s honored vocal group, The Cruisers. The performance will take place in the library’s 291 seat theater, located at 901 G St NW, Washington, DC. This program is free and open to everyone.
Meet the Cruisers: Formed in 1999, the U.S. Navy Band Cruisers, the Navy’s premier popular music group takes its name from the Navy's versatile, flexible, multi-missioned ship – the Cruiser – and the band lives up to its namesake with the capability of playing a variety of musical genres ranging from jazz standards, rhythm & blues, classic rock, adult contemporary and pop, as well as original material. This elite group has engaged and excited audiences of all ages throughout the U.S. and abroad with world-class musicianship and high energy, fun-filled performances.
In addition to public concerts and educational outreach appearances, the Cruisers are in constant demand by the most senior government and military officials, including the president, secretary of the Navy and the chief of naval operations. Their show-stopping appearances on Navy birthday concerts, holiday concerts, national tours and summer concert series performances are always a highlight.
